Re: a few questions

idk the answer to the rest of ur questions because im runnin a 95 lude with an h23a, but i do know that tokico suspension upgrades are def worth it.
you should also try to invest in a front and rear strut bar.
i have both installed in my car and it jus keeps the frame stiffer and takes turns much nicer.

No.

It depends. What action will the car see a majority of the time?

Yes, but you should also look into Koni, KYB, Tein, Eibach, Tanabe, Function and Form, and a bunch of others. There are tons of options out there.

Get an Energy Suspension Hyperflex Master Bushing set and new motor/tranny mounts. As long as you have access to a torch, a table vice, a hacksaw, and run-of-the-mill tools, you should be able to change out all the bushings. A hydraulic press helps, but it isn't necessary.

Re: a few questions

Hop on that deal then. Can't beat that with a stick.

As for the tires, it's really up to your preference. You should find the Tire Review Thread on here and look at what everyone has contributed. That's what it's there for.

Honestly dude, this is about as straight forward as it gets. If you can get the part out, then get the bushing out, you can get a new one in. A little ingenuity will go a loooooong way.
